Organic skincare treatments offer a whole host of benefits, particularly to spa clients diagnosed with cancer. With 375,400 new cases of cancer every year in the UK, many will be seeking relief in a spa environment. To help open the doors to these clients, we outline why organic skincare is vital to offer at your spa.
Organic skincare treatments are soothing to sensitive skin
Founded by Amanda Windwood, Made for Life Organics and its sustainable skincare products were created with the ethos of providing healthy and wholesome living to all, including those facing cancer.
“Most people who go through treatment for cancer will go through chemotherapy. As a result of treatment, skin will often become drier and more fragile than ever before,” explains Amanda. Clients recovering from cancer may therefore have sensitive or inflamed skin. Spa therapists can help combat this by using products that can natural ingredients and essential nutrients to help soothe the skin, such as those specifically created by Made for Life Organics.
Organic products contain essential nutrients
Many oncologists will advise their patients to use natural or organic products, as these reduce side-effects caused by cancer treatments. This is because of their natural ingredients, such as creams with vitamin-rich avocado oils, tea tree oils, and lavender extracts to nourish the skin without the use of irritating chemicals. Many skincare companies, such as Made for Life Organics, provide a range of products that use natural herbs, flowers and oils. These can then be used or recommended by spa staff to visiting clients who are recovering from cancer.
The types of treatments for clients with cancer
Many who are diagnosed with cancer will seek out specific therapies for recovery. There are numerous treatments that you can offer within your spa to help clients, such as aromatherapy, reflexology and massages. Such treatments lend themselves to the use of organic products, such as natural massage oils and aromatherapy, to transform them into organic skincare treatments catered to those with cancer. We have plenty more details to help tailor your treatments to clients facing cancer, too.
Organic skincare treatments help relax clients with cancer
Organic skincare treatments can also help alleviate stress for those facing cancer. Skincare is often used in complementary treatments, which are those used alongside conventional medical treatments to offer other health benefits. Therefore, an organic skincare massage can relieve mental and muscular tensions, helping clients feel more relaxed.
